Grey's goes to the green zone

      This week, ABC's Grey's Anatomy decided to show viewers what Dr. Hunt's (Kevin McKidd) experience in Iraq was like, or at least a small part of it.  Though it tied fairly well into a current situation at the hospital, I found myself a little disappointed with the result.  We already knew how scarred Owen was from what he saw, and seeing him let a man die who could have survived didn't really add to the depth.  What I would have liked to seen more of, but was only touched on, was his relationship with Teddy (Kim Raver).  Since it seems like Teddy is sticking around on the show, it would be nice if they showed us that instead.

        That being said, it was not a bad episode.  Dr. Hunt is one of the most interesting characters to be added to the cast in a long time, and his relationship with Christina (Sandra Oh) is certainly not going to get easy very fast.  It's nice to see their interaction, and how he has helped her to grow.

     In fact, all of the original interns, well, the three left, seem to finally be adults.  Alex Karev (Justin Chambers) didn't handle losing his wife very well, but he has come a long way from the man slut  jerk he started out as.  Similarly, Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) has changed into someone not so afraid of commitment, and a damn good wife as Mrs. Dr. Shepherd.  It will be good to see the three residents finally become attendings someday, and they are well on their way.

     I'd also like to note, Callie (Sara Ramirez) and Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) are NOT an expendable couple.  If Shonda (Rhimes, the showrunner) wants to put them through a little bit of drama with the disagreement about kids, that's fine, but it took a leap for many fans to see Callie as a lesbian, and she already had one woman ripped away from her, not to mention a husband.  She cannot be made to suffer another romantic loss.  It isn't fair.

     Also, Richard's (James Pickens Jr.) demotion and Derek's (Patrick Dempsey) rocky time settling into the job has been very well handled.  Please keep it up.

     Grey's Anatomy airs Thursday nights at 9pm on ABC.
